Pattern Magic: Stretch Fabrics

Tomoko Nakamichi


Translated into English for the first time, this is the third in the series of cult Japanese patternmaking books. This new volume looks at working with stretch and jersey fabric. Material that stretches lengthways or sideways can be magical in itself. This book takes the special qualities of jersey and stretch fabrics and uses them to create stunning, sculptural designs. In two parts, the book shows how to work with stretch fabrics and how to cut patterns that exploit their properties with truly original results. The book is accompanied by a basic paper pattern sloper.

After serving many years as a professor at Bunka Fashion College, Tomoko Nakamichi currently delivers lectures and holds courses on pattern making, both in her native Japan and internationally. This book brings together the results of the research on garment patterns she has carried out to help instruct her students.
